So, what is monoglycérides et diglycérides d'acides gras?

Monoglycerides and diglycerides of fatty acids are commonly used food ingredients that serve as emulsifiers, thickeners, and stabilizers. They are derived from natural sources such as vegetable oils and animal fats, and are commonly used in processed foods to improve texture, consistency, and shelf life. These molecules are composed of fatty acids attached to a glycerol backbone, which allows them to interact with both water and oil-based ingredients in food. Due to their ability to improve the texture and stability of food products, monoglycerides and diglycerides of fatty acids are widely used in the food industry.
